They haven’t announced the time, just yet. I will be sure to post an update and a reminder as soon as I get more details a) "Like" them prior to the giveaway, it will save you time signing-up. b) Be sure you have your printer on, as you will need it to print your coupon.
Head over and “like” the Lindt Chocolate Facebook page and get ready to score some FREE chocolate! Starting Tuesday, 10/9 fans will receive a coupon for a FREE bag of Lindt Lindor Truffles – while supplies last. The coupon can be redeemed at retailers and at Lindt Chocolate Shops nationwide.
Update: I did not think they would do this late at night/early in the morning. I can just see
the comments on the Facebook page when they run out of these...
Link to coupon app, available now. The coupon is very interesting. It is personalized with your name and FB profile pic. I would imagine that the reason for this is twofold; prevent fraud, and (hopefully) have the coupon accepted at stores, as many will not accept printables for freebies. I do hope my local Rite Aid or Walgreens will take it. This coupon has an expiration date of 11/7/12, and will therefore no longer be good for use after this date.
ETA: People are complaining of problems with app already. I personally had no issues with printing out mine.
